  1. I have a big problem with the stradegy of Federated... I was in Atlanta when they took over Rich's...Rich's was a historic name in the city, just as Foley's is here. Macy's ain't the grand chain it once was during its heyday. In fact I find a lot of their stores to be rather tired. I have a big problem with corporate America's obsession with increasing their bottom line by every penny possible...it's as if greed knows no bounds. The main reasoning I have heard from Federated regarding these name changes is simply to save $$$ on advertising and printing the damn store bags! Who in the hell wa
  2. Tinsley's in Bryan was located at the corner of Texas Avenue and Martin Luther King Street. The building is now a Mexican cafe. This location is across the street from the former Gath's Electrical Supply, which was formerly Gath's Fried Chicken, which before that was the original Bryan Popeye's Chicken. Tinsley's in Bryan closed in the summer of 1996.
  3. New controversies have erupted over the future Rudder High... First a battle is quickly shaping up over how attendance zones will be set up for the high school... Bryan ISD looks at attendance zone issues By HOLLY HUFFMAN Eagle Staff Writer Bryan school trustees clashed Thursday while debating the need for high school attendance boundaries to determine who will attend Rudder High School when it opens in fall 2008. Most trustees and administrators seemed to prefer creation of an attendance zone that would coincide with a liberal transfer policy that would allow students to change schools if the
  4. Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway by Jerome R. Corsi Posted Jun 12, 2006 Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn....

  5. Bryan trustees approve school design plan By HOLLY HUFFMAN Eagle Staff Writer Bryan school trustees on Monday approved general design plans for an over-budget Rudder High School despite worries that they could be $2 million short after completing all projects outlined in last year's bond package. The new high school, scheduled to open in fall 2008, was the largest and most costly project called for under the $104 million bond package that voters approved in February 2005. The original price tag for the school was set at $42.6 million.... Link to full story.... http://www.theeagle
  6. Excuse me...this has taken me by surprise....since when did people of Hispanic descent become Caucasian? Last time I checked on the Census questionaire, the options to check were CAUCASIAN, NOT OF HISPANIC DESCENT and then just plain CAUCASIAN. So where did that statement come from? Does that mean that most African-Americans in Houston are Italian or Irish?
  7. No, you are thinking of a guy from the development depeartment whose first name is Joey, but his last name escapes me. Kevin Russell's position was eliminated by the city council with the explanation that the Brazos Valley Development Council should be the ones to pay his salary instead of the city, a clearly fool-hardy stance.
  8. Originally the plan was for Blinn to completely takeover the Townshire Shopping Center (the school used to be housed in the former Sears space in the center), and then there was discussion of giving the school the Manor East Mall property, but ultimately the space where it is now was chosen because of the abundance of space available for it to be able to expand. At that time there was not a big push to expand in west Bryan and the land in that area was held by a lot of individuals who weren't selling. I think the location is perfect since it offers easy access to the freeway, and that entire
  9. I would hardly call the stretch of South College between TAMU and downtown Bryan 'ghetto' (and even then the word 'ghetto' is pushing it) until you get to the area north of Cavitt, which has been be overtaken by illegal immigrants, dilapadated apartments complexes, and prostitutes. I am angered by this Muni decision also. I have stated this before, but I'm going to say it again: the development of Bryan has been on the wrong track since the early 2005 dismissal of city development planner Kevin Russell. Muni NEEDS TO GO. There are already an abundance of golfing options in this area, and t
  10. Yes Deborah Duncan's (or Debra as she was known then) show on ABC 13 was major, as Disney (ABC 13's owner) was testing the show in this market with plans to syndicate it nationally through its Buena Vista arm if it took off locally. However, while the ratings were okay here, Disney ultimately decided to go with other options (Tony Danza). Interesting sidenote: ABC 13 titled the show DEBRA Duncan instead of Deborah simply because it was easier to incorporate Debra into the logo designed for the show. I met Ms. Duncan backstage at the show during its first week and she is a perky and engagin
  11. To the previous post about the need of whites to come back to the city to save it, why is it that they have to be the savior? Atlanta is a prime example of a city with black leadership and a majority black population that is doing just fine without the savior of whites who feel the need to flee to the suburbs. A before the argument is made that crime was responsible for white flight, let's remember that when the flight began in the early to mid 60's before the riots, that flight was more the result of whites fleeing integration and the inevitable loss of power in city government due to the o
  12. I will get down there in the next few days to take some pictures to post. Stay tuned.
  13. Construction has begun on the eagerly anticipated new justice center for the city of Bryan. Bulldozers have moved in and begun clearing the various tracts for the center, which will occupy several blocks between Texas Avenue and Main Main Streets at the southern edge of downtown, with the entrance being across 29th Street from the municipal building/city hall. The justice center will include a new police department and jail facility and municipal court space, bringing the three together again for the first time in nearly fifteen years or so. Currently the police department is located caticor
